Circa January 6, 2021, America has a great many pressing problems. These problems affect hundreds of millions of Americans. Among the most pressing, most in need of rapid and rational resolution are: complete vaccine dispersal to those most at risk, restoration of the economy, maintenance of America’s energy independence, maintenance of America’s national security, restoration of American’s faith in our electoral system, and keeping taxes low and government small.
It therefore makes perfect sense, in the deranged logic of the DC Beltway, that the incoming Harris/Biden Administration and the D/S/C Congress are determined not only to disrupt vaccine distribution, but to disperse it on social justice, not public health, priorities. So too are they determined to destroy our energy independence and our national security. They also plan to render voting irrelevant to cement their eternal grip on power, dramatically raise taxes and expand government to control every aspect of American’s lives.
These are non-trivial intentions. However, our elected, and increasingly, anointed, representatives are not big thinkers. Many, particularly in the D/S/C party are elderly and plainly suffering from the mental decline of old age. Sniffin’ Joe Biden’s priority is to force every American to wear a paper mask for 100 days; there is no telling what pressing problem this might address. Even the younger among them are debilitated by identity politics and terminal political correctness. So it is hardly surprising this would be among their immediate priorities:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress on Friday, which contain ‘future-focused’ proposals, including the elimination of gendered terms, such as ‘father, mother, son, and daughter.’
By “future focused” they speak of the utopian, communist future they plan to inflict on us all.
‘This package, which will be introduced and voted on once the new Congress convenes, includes sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history,’ said the House Committee on Rules in a statement.
And yes, gentle readers, they’re not only senile, but quite insane:
House Speaker Pelosi went on to say she is ‘pleased to join Chairman Jim McGovern in introducing this visionary rules package, which reflects the views and values of the full range of our historically diverse House Democratic Majority.’
‘Thanks to the leadership of Chairman McGovern and our Members, Democrats have crafted a package of unprecedented, bold reforms, which will make the House more accountable, transparent, and effective in our work to meet the needs of the American people,’ said Pelosi.
And how, exactly, does wiping away recognition of biology, familial relationships, and rationally descriptive use of the English language make Congress more “accountable, transparent, and effective”?
‘These future-focused proposals reflect our priorities as a Caucus and as a Country,’ the House Speaker added.
Oh, I’m quite sure these proposals reflect their priorities, which are not only exceedingly trivial in comparison with the real issues facing Americans, but utterly deranged.
Within the proposals are the creation of the ‘Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth,’ which would require Congress to ‘honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender neutral.’
Can the official Dictionary of Newspeak be far behind?
In clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, gendered terms, such as ‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter’ will be removed.
In their place, terms such as ‘parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild’ will be used, instead.
This particularly trivial insanity is not only proposed, it actually passed the D/S/C House. Let us remember D/S/Cs cloak themselves as the protectors of women, yet in abolishing these terms in common usage, they reveal themselves to be waging an actual war on women. Women, because of their gender—one of two, not thousands—hold unique and irreplaceable roles in society. Regardless of the idiots asserting there is such a thing as “birthing people,” only women bear and give birth to children. Only women breast feed. Only women are uniquely able to nurture children, and “mother” is an indispensable foundation of society, just as “father,” when one fully lives up to his responsibilities, is. Nothing, in any way, replaces a mother, certainly not politically correct speech. Pelosi and the rest of the gang that can’t think straight are, in their demented rush to inclusiveness, wiping away all that makes women women.
Are we rushing headlong into a Saturday Night Live sketch, where like the Coneheads, there are no mothers or fathers, merely “parental units?” Are children, regardless of gender, to be known as “offspring units?” Or will we just slide directly into the all inclusive, yet diverse “comrade” that worked so well for the Soviet Union and other despotic Communist dictatorships who resolved similarly annoying issues by killing—diversely and inclusively–those that objected?
Do you remember, gentle readers, Congressman Hank Johnson (D, GA), who in 2017 in a congressional hearing, expressed concern that if our military stationed too many personnel on Guam, the island would overturn and capsize? No, he wasn’t kidding, though he and media apologists later tried to claim Johnson was using some sort of metaphor about over population or climate change or something. Johnson was more recently followed by the incredibly dimwitted Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-China), who observed:
Rep. Honey Trap Swalwell apparently hasn’t read the Constitution, which includes such terms as “the people,” and “persons,” but does not include the word, “man” or “men” once. He remains on the House Intelligence Committee despite having been compromised by the Communist Chinese, and despite being obviously bereft of intelligence. Now we have, in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and our newly self-empowered commissars, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D, MO), who is onboard, to the exclusion of his professed faith,with inclusive language:
The Democrat congressmen invited to give the invocation for the opening of the 117th U.S. Congress is making the rounds on social media for concluding his prayer in…well, a highly unusual way. [skip]
Democrat Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a United Methodist pastor and the representative for Missouri’s 5th District, concluded his prayer by dedicating it ‘in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahama, and god known by many names by many different things,’ with ‘Brahama’ referring to the primary creator god in Hinduism.
He then bizarrely finished his prayer with ‘Amen…and awoman.’
One might be tempted to think Cleaver merely as dimwitted as Johnson and Swalwell, but he is an ordained minister, a man who actually attended, and presumably graduated from, an accredited seminary. Most people use a variety of terms their entire lives without knowing their etymology or meaning. “Emanuel” for instance, means “God with us.” We tend to understand words through their context, so for many, “amen” means “all done; where’s the food?” Actually, “amen” translates to “so be it,” or “let it be so.” It’s an affirmation, an agreement with the word of God, or with the sentiment or intention of a prayer or other expression of faith. It has nothing to do with gender. The antonym of “amen” is not “awoman.”
One would therefore hope an ordained Christian minister would be focused on God as Christianity teaches. One would also hope a seminary trained minister would be sufficiently well read to know the actual translation of “amen,” and would therefore understand “awoman” is not only nonexistent, but nonsensical. Sadly, many Christian ministers and denominations have replaced God’s word and Christian theology with wokeness—D/S/C agitprop–which is clearly what Cleaver is doing, unless like so many other D/S/C “leaders,” including the top of the D/S/C ticket, Gropin’ Joe Biden,” he’s merely cognitively impaired.
Of course, when the goal of a political party is totalitarianism, the pursuit of the trivial is a virtue, not a vice. If they can force us to think/not think and speak/not speak certain words, or wear masks, they own us—and they’re soooo stupid. If we play along, what does that say about us?
